    and the number one reason... The Mayan Apocalypse might end the world and Nintendo will have been the only one with a new console out. Thank you very much! Please tip your waitress.

    Basically when Nintendo announce a fire emblem game, the new smash bros, new f-zero and a new zelda game I will come crawling back. I never got a wii either so I have all of those games to go through. I imagine I will get a wii u in the summer or the first price drop. Will stick with that and a PS3 and it'll be fine! I think a new F-zero would be the thing for me, this never happened on Wii sadly but it will almost defs happen on this system. also with a new pikmin already announced all that remains is a rumour of a Lylat Wars game and we're back in business on all the great franchises front! So yes, do that please Nintendo and I will buy your console and a load of cheap Wii games online. TAKE MY MONEY (when you drop the price a tad)

    I disagree that Nintendo intended the Wii U to be competition for THIS generation. If that's the case - why leave it till the latter stages of their competitor's current products' life cycle?! The Wii was released around the same time as the PS3, and this is their foray into the NEXT generation. ;)

    In my opinion, I'm just happy Nintendo is coming out with a new system cause I'm eager for the new SSB. After all, who cares about sales or graphics or even what system wins/loses? All that should matter is that gamers have fun with the new console because thats what gaming is all about, not dividing us up and hating each other's choice of console, its the joy of the game that's important. If its fun, then its won. Also, did I mention I'm eager for the new SSB? XD

    Sir, while I respect that you feel as though what matters is that the gamer's have fun, I have to say that is false. Regardless of weather or not the gamer enjoys the system if sales are lackluster the publisher (in this case Nintendo) might end up not making a follow up console, like what happened with the Dreamcast and Sega. Now this would lead to the cease of existence of the Super Smash Bros. game that you so eagerly anticipate. While gamer satisfaction is a large part of the console it self, sales are what ensure a future for the publisher. P.S. I agree, I don't give a shit about graphics, I mean I appreciate good graphics but content, story and plot are much more important.

    i don't even have to read this to know it'd moronic. the wii u was released basically with the capabilities of the 360 and PS3, which are current generation consoles. in terms of sales, nintendo didn't have to compete with the big boys, cause they could make casual shit all day everyday and rake in the dough. they decided they wanted to, however, and had to create a new system to do so. saying the wii u will even have a CHANCE of "winning" the next generation is absurd: by the time the next generation actually starts, the will u hardware will be defunct and surpassed. the wii u was released to compete THIS generation, not next.

    You actually think the PS3 and Xbox360 were a console generation without counting the Wii? I just fell out of my chair laughing! Those two didn't even have a Mario game between them, let alone a Zelda! The Wii had TWO Zelda games! How is that not winnning!

I kinda only joined here because trolls are too much fun not to go and bite back at, and your "misunderstanding" of how semiotics are determined by social consent and not "personal delusions" (NICE trolling by the way!) was far too epic to pass... :)

    This comment goes out to anyone who wants the Wii U to fail, you do realize there are people who really enjoy what Nintendo does, and that the three console battle is what has made the current generation in gaming so incredible. The notion that Nintendo should not do good, or even close, is backward and incredibly selfish. I could sit here and go on and on about Nintendo has done for the industry, but so I stay in the present for anyone who would be that guy to say "the past doesn't matter, only the present does" look at the level of quality Nintendo puts into almost every first party game it makes. One thing that you can be 99% sure of is that it will continue its tradition of excellence. If you still are sitting there saying that the wii u should't see any degree of success, you either haven't played a Nintendo game, or you seriously need to evaluate your morals.

    TL;DR Anyone who wants the Wii U to not see some degree of success is selfish or ignorant.
  • Thedigitalg - November 20, 2012 1:11 p.m.

    I agree, Nintendo's first party games are second to none. At least they are actively trying to find new ways to game, too, as opposed to MOAR GRAPHICS and robbing ideas from the competition (i.e. Move, PS Battle Royale, etc). It's a shame third-party support is pisspoor, but most people have more than one console anyway.
  • mothbanquet - November 21, 2012 10:14 a.m.

    Agreed. I don't own a Wii and never have but the SMG games were some of the most fun I'd had in a long, long time. I don't anticipate getting any of the next consoles any time soon but I'm hoping Nintendo continue their success. The gaming world would be a much darker place if Mario and Zelda were sold off to EA...

    7 and 5 are misleading. 7: The Wii may have the most hardware, but it has the least software sales. If you honestly think that the Wii came out as the top dog of this generation then you need your eyes checked. Do a survey asking readers what systems they are still playing on. 5: NES - already had a backlog of games through Nintendo's arcade games. It pulled all of its games from 3rd party systems. Gameboy - significantly cheaper, lighter, longer battery life, and larger game library than its competitors. The Gamegear and Lynx didn't stand a chance. PSX - not really inferior. The cd drive allowed for bigger games, which was desirable to developers. It also allowed it to be used as a cd player. PS2 - Let's be honest here, it didn't have much competition. The Gamecube's only use was for first party games; Nintendo completely failed to bring in or assist the 3rd party developers. The Xbox (and Microsoft) were new to the scene; they had no fanbase to start with and were a real wildcard. Wii - see my response to #7. The Wii pushed the most units, but is by far the most unpopular device after purchase. It had very poor 3rd party games. Nintendo failed, once again, to #1 entice the 3rd party and #2 to assist them in learning how to use their revolutionary controller. Unless Nintendo has learned from its past mistakes dealing with the 3rd party, I see this console being very weak in the long-run.

    how about game designers actually make well functioning UIs before we worry about putting them on a tablet.
  • THE_FORCE - November 20, 2012 11:05 a.m.

    By the time devs suss out how to make games look almost as good on the Wii U as they do their current-gen counterparts, we'll be going 'ooh' and 'aaah' at the next Uncharted title on Orbis.
